The Kiddi-crèche Promise
I promise you that your child will receive the best possible care in your absence that was afforded to my own children and the children of my staff. My team and I will provide a learning environment that will help your child grow happily in our hands. We will safeguard, nurture and develop your child in readiness for the challenges they will face in their future education.
Hello and thank you for your enquiry
My name is Marie Lister, I opened Kiddi-crèche Nursery at The School House on Cottingley New Road in March 1993 before I had my own children. I now have two boys who spent many happy years at Kiddi-crèche before starting school. After 10 years our excellent reputation locally made demand for my nursery overwhelming and I felt we were disappointing too many families. I therefore decided to open a second nursery nearby at The Holmstead, Cottingley Bridge in June 2003. This enabled me to meet demand and retain high quality practitioners as I have more senior job opportunities. Both nurseries have an excellent reputation locally. We have had so many happy families over generations who send wonderful messages of thanks and appreciation for the care and support we have provided them and their children.
I have built a wonderful staff team around me. We are known to continually strive for excellence and with over 25 years experience we have developed principles and good practice that now define Kiddi-crèche. Our families regard us highly and we have enjoyed some wonderful years nurturing their children, many of whom now bring their own children to Kiddi-crèche. We are a highly qualified and experienced staff team, some of us having worked together for over 20 years. We train and develop new members, who like us show that extra commitment we are looking for. Together we are an extremely dedicated team achieving high quality early years care and educational outcomes for every child who attends Kiddi-crèche.
The first five years of your child's life is crucial in forming the foundation from which they will develop. Choosing someone to care for your child during this time is one of the most important decisions you will make. What your child learns and experiences today is key to unlocking their future and because children develop significantly in their first five years it is important to get it right.
I believe "Every Child Matters" and every child is a "Gift of Life". So special and precious. I feel privileged every time a parent leaves a child in my care. It is a great responsibility and I take it incredibly seriously.
